“A good introduction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

If you never been to an aquarium before than this is a good experience. I would rate it at the lower level of international standards.The walk through see through tunnel is very nice and children will love it. the most outstanding feature of the place is for group functions the see view function rooms have a full wall that the back of the walk through display

“Nothing Attractive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

I visited the ocean park with my wife and 1-year-old daughter on a rainy Saturday in Oct'11. On arrival, there was a long a queue to buy the entry tickets and it took one hour to get to the ticket window. Moreover water was dripping from the shade when people stood in the queue. You can get idea how poorly it is maintained from this. We decided to visit the oceanarium and penguin park. When we got inside, It was full of crowd and very difficult to move with the baby in a pram. You need again stand in long and frustrating queue to get into each attraction. I would not recommend the ocean park to anyone. We spent some 2000 PHP on tickets and it was complete waste of money.

“Just average and not impress”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

Though the space provided for roaming is good but the actual Oceanarium is pathetic. I thnk it is just 50m walk and that's the end.

Other exhibits are only in fish tank.

We also bought the Penguin Exhibit which is also not that impressive. The snow town is a complete joke.

However, if you want to kill some time for your kids, it is still alright to go.
